@JonoH “Space” is too vague. Why say “mobile broadband space”, rather than “market” or “industry” or “customer base”? It IS a personal hate.

RT @andrewbarnett: Low emotional intelligence of both US management and nerd reporters? [I like that thought! Also “war” creates “drama”.]

@JonoH Maybe business is like gardening. “Race” is good, because it’s competitive without the aggression against other players.

@JonoH Hi. :) Never been happy with “space”, too vague. “Ecology” worked until clueless managers with no idea of the meaning parroted it.

On that, if business is “war” then everyone else is “enemy”. Is that the right way to frame it? Doesn’t cooperation beat fighting? [shrugs]

RT @mediahunter: Microsoft loses ground in browser war http://tinyurl.com/74slh3 [Why “war”? Reinforce middle-aged execs’ fading virility?]

@garthk @saline @Mediamum Wasn’t there a BBC News Editor (or similar) who once banned all adjectives from news.
